07/03/13 127 W, 2 I - + 9 - 5 Ferrells Fire Department's Ward LaFrance

Lee Wilson shares these photos from twenty years ago, of the Ferrells Fire Department in Nash County and their first fire engine, what he recorded as a 1945 Ward LaFrance that they obtained in/around 1974. (That's the year they incorporated, in November of that month.) They sold the truck shortly after the time of this 1993 photo. He recently found and photographed the truck off Highway 97, at an old barn in a field. We'll share those photos a bit later. Where did the truck come from, and serve during its first decades? We'll let Lee or other readers offer opinions. Next question, how many other mid-century Ward LaFrance fire trucks served in our state? Did any others?? Click to enlarge:
